This is the cheapest of our good grafting knives, the one we use to teach with at our grafting workshops. This straight bladed grafting / budding knife is Italian made. The red platic handle feels solid. Carbon steel blade for superior sharpness, and a medium sized handle. Carbon blades should be wiped with a lightly oiled rag after use, and sharpened with a diamond sharpener - something like an EZElap sharpener.
Pollination is far simpler than most people think. Generally, unless self fertile simply get 2 or more different varieties in the same group (eg pears) to ensure adequate pollination. A more comprehensive explanation can be found in our Pollination Guide
